Greenhead Park, Huddersfield was where my parkrun adventure started. Our reason for being “up north” on this occasion was to visit our daughter (also a parkrunner).
My wife Cathy (another parkrunner!) had “done” Greenhead Park on a previous visit to Huddersfield, whilst I had stood on the sidelines as spectator. I remember watching the different runners in all corners of the park at the same time and wondering what it would be like to take part in something like this. I also remember “pacing” Cathy from the sidelines for about 100m or so and thinking..”you know what…I might be able to do this, even if I have to walk some of the way round.”
